Check this out. The folks from the IndyCar Series included a driver blooper video as part of their 2013 championship celebration event.
It’s good stuff and goes to show that IndyCar drivers know how to have some fun. Enjoy!
Penske Racing was perfect Friday in the first phase toward pushing Helio Castroneves to the IndyCar championship.
Will Power, Castroneves and AJ Allmendinger swept the front row in qualifying for Saturday night’s season finale at Auto Club Speedway, where Castroneves is trying to chase down Scott Dixon for the IndyCar title.
Scott Dixon took control of the IndyCar championship race when Helio Castroneves suffered his second mechanical failure in two days at the Grand Prix of Houston, where the race ended when Dario Franchitti’s car went airborne into the fence on the final lap.
The accident in Turn 5 happened when the car of four-time IndyCar champion Franchitti launched over Takuma Sato’s and sailed into the fence. Debris was showered into the grandstand from both the cars colliding and the impact with the fence, and Franchitti’s badly damaged car bounced back onto the track. E.J. Viso then hit Sato’s car.
Scott Dixon made the opening race of the Houston Grand Prix a Penske Racing nightmare, grabbing a series-best fourth victory while slicing a huge chunk off Helio Castroneves’ lead in the IndyCar championship race.
Dixon, who entered Saturday’s race trailing Castroneves by 49 points, cut his deficit to eight points heading into Sunday’s race. A sweep of the doubleheader through Reliant Park would put the New Zealander in control headed into the Oct. 19 finale at Fontana, California.
